Roseville police offer first daytime Citizen’s Police Academy

The Roseville Police Department is accepting applications for its first daytime Citizen’s Police Academy.

Classes will be held from 9:30 a.m. to noon Monday through Thursday from March 7 to March 17. The eight sessions will be held at the Roseville Police Department, 1051 Junction Blvd. The deadline for registration is Friday.

The Citizen’s Police Academy is intended to provide people who live or work in Roseville an inside look at local law enforcement. Participants will be introduced to the concept of community-oriented policing and problem-solving, and learn how community members can partner with the Police Department to keep their community safe. They will meet Roseville Police Chief Daniel Hahn and the police command staff, as well as representatives from K-9, investigations, records and other operational units, according to a Police Department news release.

Class sessions will include discussion of common crimes, search and seizure, gangs and drugs, along with other information about law enforcement procedures and the local crime scene.

Participants also will learn about the range of volunteer opportunities at the Police Department. All police volunteers are required to complete the Citizen’s Police Academy.

Candidates for the academy must be at least 18 years old, live or work in the Roseville area, and be able to attend all eight class sessions.

Applications are available via the Police Department’s website,
